Regular diesel particulate filter (DPF) cleaning and inspection is essential to ensure Euro 6 and ULEZ compliance. To help operators meet this challenge, Imperial Engineering has established a partnership with Ceramex, a world leading DPF cleaning service provider.
Ceramex DPF Cleaning
By utilising its patented and OEM approved Xpurge technology in a chemical and oven-free process, the Ceramex diesel particulate filter cleaner offers the highest possible cleaning success rate to ensure vehicles remain Euro 6 compliant. Compared to conventional DPF cleaner methods, which only tend to remove soot deposits, the Xpurge bus DPF cleaner also removes residual ash deposits to ensure a fully cleaned DPF that’s effectively as good as new.
Ceramex DPF removal
Removal of both soot and ash deposits makes a fundamental difference in terms of performance, enabling longer service intervals for DPF cleans, fewer failures due to hard ash deposits and less expensive DPF replacements. DPFs cleaned using the Ceramex cleaner Xpurge technology also ensure optimum fuel consumption as conventionally cleaned DPFs where residual ash deposits are still present can result in a vehicle consuming up to seven percent more fuel and significantly increased running costs.
Ceramex uses a range of inspection technologies to ensure that the cleaned DPF will perform as well as when it was new, and that Euro 6 compliance is maintained. Ceramex’s most comprehensive test method is the Veritex inspection system. This patented process uses transmitted light to investigate the internal condition of the DPF after cleaning and can identify any remaining blockages in the filter, as well as holes, cracks and other forms of damage to the unit.
Emissions limits for modern vehicles are subject to stringent legislation and the bus and commercial vehicles DPF system plays a critical role in controlling emissions. DPF removal is illegal, as stipulated by DPF removal law.
